Yannis Behrakis

The juxtaposition of the poster and the boy, both of whom are looking right at the lens, is what fascinates me about this image. Though the tonal range is slightly washed out by the presence of the window, the bar running through the middle provides enough solid information to get past the blur of the glass and the reflected landscape. The image is segmented in several different ways: the flat poster and the boy, the interior and the exterior, the reflection and what is behind the reflection. All of these devisions create a complexity that is hard to achieve in a picture this flat.
